Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1998 Oldsmobile 88

What Can I Expect with Oldsmobile 88 Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Oldsmobile 88’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Oldsmobile intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Oldsmobile specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 Oldsmobile 88, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Oldsmobile. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Oldsmobile 88 Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your Oldsmobile 88 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1998 Oldsmobile 88: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 88 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
